    She ate a bird

    Advertisements
    I'm reasonably sure that Lady ate a bird. I have feathers and other "parts" in the yard.

    What I know about birds is gross and I know I don't wan't her eating them, they're covered in parasites and all sorts of other things.

    What should I do with her? She's acting fine, other than zoned in on the birds.

    Our cat catches birds all the time, because well he spends a good amount of time outside every day and has never had any issues. I'm not sure how that works with dogs though.

    Yeah I don't know if my cat has gotten a bird, he's with my parents and I'm pretty sure my mom would tell me if he had, he likes to bring "prizes" to her.

    Honestly, probably the worst that will happen is that she will throw the bird back up. My old dog used to eat dead rabbit, birds, anything she found that the cats had got. And she was absolutely fine.

    I think I'm more disgusted by what I know than, I am worried about her. I'm reminding myself she's vaccinated and gotten her preventative.

    Honestly.. she should be fine. Dogs were built to eat that kind of stuff. As long as shes up on her vacc's she probably wont suffer any side effects. My only concern would be an obstruction if she ate too many of the feathers or bones. Just make sure she keeps eating and drinking.
